BRICK SALE

In an effort to beautify the grounds in front St. Mary's Church Parish Office, we have begun a bricked area which can be used as a prayer place.  Remember your loved ones in a special way by purchasing a memorial brick(s) to complete this area.  By purchasing a brick you are not only creating an area for prayer and remembering your loved ones but also helping St. Mary to reduce the financial debt.  You can purchase your memorial brick through the Online Giving tab or call the Church Parish Office for more information.

                                                                                                                                                        

 

 

 

WHAT IS GRIEF SHARE?

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult  experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend to death, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.  Although it may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now, we would like to help you move toward it.

GriefShare groups are non-denominational and meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.  St. Mary’s Nativity Church and Holy Savior Church will begin a GriefShare program on Tuesday, March 12, 2019.  Meetings will be every Tuesday for 14-weeks from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church office. If you are interested, call Marty Cortez at (985) 227-0873, Arvella Dupre at (985) 414-4126 or St. Mary’s Church at (985) 537-3204.  Please pass this along to anyone you feel may need this opportunity.  It is never too late to join!
